Spelling Tips


    If your child is having difficulty with spelling certain words, try a variety of ways to practice them: 

    * Sound them out together. Break the word into parts and examine how the word is put together. 
    * Practice the words orally. 
    * Try pyramid practice.  For example, with the spelling word "rhyme":
    * Have the student write each word five times.
    * Have the student write the words in sentences and then check the sentences together. 
    * Give the student a practice test and then check it together - continue testing the words the student misses until 100% is achieved. 
    * Write the words in a pan of shaving cream, salt, or flour, or in the snow.
